New Council Positions to Open March’22, New National ACC Committee appointments!

Hello Maryland ACC Colleagues,

Happy New Year!  Hope everyone had a happy and healthy holiday. Please continue to stay safe as the Omicron spike takes Maryland hospitals. I wanted to give a quick update on a few new things:

New Council Positions to Open March’22: Please consider applying for these positions. Feel free to email the Chapter's Executive Director, Jennifer Ray Beckman ( with any questions. Here are the new positions: Council Member (four openings), WIC (Women Cardiologists) Chair, Member Relations Chair, Carrier Advisory Committee Chair. The Chapter thrives on the engagement and ideas of the members and we encourage you to apply for these positions. This is the best way to be more involved with the ACC. This is how I started my journey as well and I greatly benefited from the volunteering and the career development opportunities with the College. Please apply!

New National ACC Committee appointments and Engagement for Maryland ACC Members: Several Maryland Chapter Members have received tremendous honor and opportunities to serve the National ACC. I am delighted to announce that Jae Patton, CRNP, AACC and Stanley Liu, MD, FACC from Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland have been selected to the prestigious “ACC Emerging Faculty” program. This is a fantastic career development program that develops the next generation of ACC Faculty that will be involved in improving the medical education and scientific sessions for the College. If anyone wants to learn more about this, please reach out to me ( Monica Mukherjee, MD, FACC from Johns Hopkins was selected to the National ACC Imaging Council. Dr. Mukherjee will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in advanced echo imaging.

Please join me in congratulating our terrific colleagues!
